Looky Here - my teeth are clean!



So who needs a digital mirror on your iPhone 4? After all, I have a front facing camera now, and i can look at myself in that.

Deposit a Check from iPhone...


USAA has now added a direct iPhone check-deposit feature to it's mobile banking app that allows you to use the iPhone's internal camera to photograph and deposit a check. I know the on-line banking business these days is comparable to Fort Knox, but iPhone security (especially in the case of jailbroken phones), is not exactly considered by some to be the highest achiever in this category. What do you think...would you use your iPhone to remotely deposit checks?

Review: Pro Zombie Soccer by Chillingo


Average zombie games may come and go, and there’s not much you can do with a traditional soccer game.  Combine the two, however, and you have pure iPhone gold.  Pro Zombie Soccer takes zombie wars to a new level with a humorous story, intense soccer kicking action, and an awesome special weapon.  The visuals are wonderful, there are a variety of different zombies to contend with, and the controls are spot on.  Not really a whole lot more you could ask for.

 Back in May, I reviewed the Elgato Video Capture device (read it here), which is a very easy way to encode and record old VCR tape video on your Mac for iPhone playback.

iPad Case: Defender Series by OtterBox



As you may (or may not) know, OtterBox recently released two new cases for the iPad. These cases are called the Defender and Commuter series. I was excited when I saw the original product announcement and requested to try out the Defender series case. I own the smaller version for my Touch, so it only made sense for me to check this guy out. I was very lucky to get my hands on a review unit. I want to say Thank You very much to OtterBox for giving me this opportunity. I am in the process of using and testing this case out. I will report back with a full review in a week or two with my impressions.
